Today's global warming news

An editorial at examiner.com suggests that people need to chill out on global warming:
it is becoming clearer by the day that major cracks are appearing in the supposed consensus among scientists that global warming caused by carbon emissions is an urgent problem that government must address with drastic measures...New data produced by more than 3,000 sophisticated ocean buoys scattered across the world’s oceans indicate average water temperatures have been decreasing since 2003...the average land temperature of the globe dropped precipitously last year...the average U.S. temperature in January was lower than the average for the previous century...the Arctic ice pack is 10 to 20 centimeters thicker in many places this year than it was in 2007...Professor Oleg Sorokhtin of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences...expects an extended period of global cooling, an assessment that is echoed by Kenneth Tapping of the U.S. National Academy of Science’s National Research Council. Both scientists contend solar activity explains most of the temperature variation in the Earth’s atmosphere...

Of course, if it were to turn out that there really isn't a global climate crisis, the controllers would have to find some other rationale for exerting control. So it is (unfortunately) going to be a long time before there's sufficient evidence to kill this panic...
